    Cook it for hours.......literally hours..............in slow cooker and it will come to no harm. Just make sure water is topped up before you start.
     
  4. Thanks, how many hrs and how much water? And do I leave it in it's plastic container with the lid off? Sorry to appear thick!
     
  5. I put mine in a pyrex pudding bowl, cover with foil then pour water upto half way up the sides. I put my slow cooker on low and leave it for about 3 hours.
     
  6. Thanks, do add boiling water?

     
  7. I use boiling water to start it off but It depends how quickly you want it to heat up. Adding boiling water will speed up the reheating process.
